Many new intimate boutique hotels in Siem Reap. But we did choose a big one. And we were very happy. All the facilities you could ask for. Free WIFI. Nice gardens. Although it is an older property, this one has aged extremely well. Superior materials, well maintained. Location is not much of an issue. Transport is cheap. This place offers almost Raffles luxury at much lower rates.
- the pool (large, good service, English a bit of a problem): enjoy the late afternoon sun when it has long disappeared at the Raffles.
- Breakfast at the veranda: good food, great selection, colonial style, slight breeze.
Room for improvement:
- Upon arrival, staff is so friendly and so willing to greet you, that it slows down the check-in procedure.
- Capability of reception staff to speak English is not consistent.
- Mattress bit to firm, but a soft pillow deck was delivered immediately.
- You want to see the sunrise at Angkor, you will leave the hotel at 05:00 AM. Being able to buy a cup of coffee/tea and a muffin at the lobby would been great service.
- If your European surname starts with 'Van' like in Van den Berg, they will constantly name you 'Mr. and Mrs. Van'. Even the 'personal' letter by Fabrice Ducry, general manager, does include this mistake.
We booked one of the six junior suites. The 'living room' is tiny and kind of useless. The wardrobe gave a huge sense of space. It was worth it.
Many tour groups at this hotel (same like Meridien, Raffles, Victoria, etc.). But they are well managed by the hotel staff. Even at Chinese New Year. And the tour groups are busy visiting Angkor all day, not intensively using the pool facilities.
We enjoyed it but we hope they changed the menu by now. They serve a great Nasi Goreng. But the menu spells the Nasi with a z and the Goreng with an i. When I showed it to a German manager, she was not amused. Don't shoot the messenger!; maybe it was the trio of British ladies starting a Monty Python 'do not mention the war' routine.
